Narrated by Arthur Pendennis, The Newcomes (1853-5) concerns a self-made man, Sir Brian Newcome, whose marriage into the aristocratic Kew family brings titled respectability to his family's "new" money. Now the marriage of his daughter Ethel is of crucial importance to both families' quest for further advancement. A revelatory and hugely witty excursion among the hypocritical upperclass, The Newcomes memorializes the evolution of an age.
From the Publisher
Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.
